Shenna Somsmieh, known by her stage name Shenna, is a singer, songwriter, actress, and model who has performed in front of thousands across the United States, Japan, London, and Canada. Notable performances include opening up for Melanie Martinez at the All Things Go Festival, touring in Japan, Disney World, The Highline Ballroom, Central Park, and the D.C. Pride Festival. She has also received radio airplay and blog reviews in several countries such as Poland, Africa, Australia, and London.

 

SHENNA has lived in a colorful world since the release of her first EP, Dream In Color, holding the number-one spot on Bandcamp in the DMV market. Her debut album Made Of Gold opened up many doors for SHENNA as she began landing major sync licensing placements from that project. Since then her music has been licensed on over 13 movies and tv shows including “Lethal Weapon”, “Selling Sunset" "The Bad Girls Club", Netflix Film "Miss Stevens", and recently Disney's original film "Star Girl".  She has received notable press on The Washington Post, Nylon Magazine, Billboard, and more. At the beginning of 2021 she partnered with Insomnia Cookies in honor of her single "Try Another Taste" and performed in store for a 3 part series.

SHENNA is currently a voting member for the Recording Academy & a member of Forbes The Culture community. She is an advocate for encouraging the youth to embrace who they are and speaks about mental health awareness in her music.

 

 

Known for incorporating colored themes for each project she releases, her next project is set for release in the Fall of this year. Her latest single "They Call It Lazy" is the first track revealed off her highly anticipated red themed album. She looks forward to showcasing her love of pop, jazz, and r&b in this next rollout of songs.
